The Goths Discovered Brown!

Snagged from athelind...




One of these days I need to rant about steampunk. I feel sorta like Auntie Mame: "I turned him down so many times when I was rich, I couldn't very well accept him when I was poor." Steampunk and I have been in the same room not talking to each other since I was a kid (see also my deep-seated but rarely-mentioned enthusiasm for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Wild, Wild West) ... and suddenly now it's popular. Does my work on the Technomancer's Toybox count as putting me on the forefront of steampunk? ;)

I fully expect some other thing I've always quietly liked but never much talked about (say, the American Revolutionary period) to suddenly become huge. I just wish I knew which of the many things in that category it was, so I could jump on and be ahead of the curve.

The way to be ahead of the curve... is to start the curve going yourself.

I think the "Tea Party" folks kinda killed any chance of the Revolutionary War becoming popular with the youth for a few generations. :P

*runs out to grab his copy of the Technomancer's Toybox to attempt to determine what it was you designed*

Steampunk is just the geek contingent of goth splitting off to form their own subsubculture.. sort of like the metalhead-goths and industrial. Myself, I'm not sure whether I like steampunk or really
really don't.

Dude, Technomancer's Toybox totally put you on the bleeding edge of Steampunk. It was my Son of Ether's guide to life.

I'm going to have to dig out my copy before the next FC, and get you to sign it.
